Sri Lanka: Police remove film cutouts of opposition politician

MP Ramanayaka as Ranja
On an order by the political authorities, police have removed the big cuouts erected in front of Ritz Cinema in Borella to announce the commencement of the screening of the film ‘Ranja’ on May 28.
The reason for their removal is that the cutouts carried wordings to the effect of a call to ‘Expose Rathupaswala Ranja and kings of anarchy.’

Borella police have refused to record a complaint by the cinema’s manager against the removal of the cutouts.
Ratnapura district UNP MP Ranjan Ramanayake plays the main role in ‘Ranja’, directed by Sadesh Wasantha Peiris, the son of Sunilsoma Peiris, and produced by Sunil T. Fernando, his 55th film.
The cast also includes Tennison Cooray, Piumi Boteju, Himali Siriwardena, Srimal Wedisinghe, Robin Fernando, Rex Kodippily, Nilmini Kottegoda, Sandun Wijesiri, Vinoja Nilanthi and Rohani Weerasinghe.
